I just received some very sad news today from the Ashton family.
Professor C. Heather Ashton passed away just before midnight on Sunday, September 15, 2019. Her transition was peaceful and she is now at rest. Her family has requested privacy during this time so they can mourn in peace. Instead of contacting them directly, they would prefer messages to be directed toward online tributes instead.
I will launch a tribute page for Prof. Ashton on the Benzo Free website in the next couple of days. I’m sure other organizations will do the same. This page will include messages from each of you if you’d like to contribute. Please complete our Feedback Form with your submission and check the permissions checkbox so we can include them online.
I am at a loss for words at this time and will keep this post short. I’m sure there will be more to follow. If you would like to learn more about Prof. Ashton and her work, please visit our page on the Ashton Manual.
Before I go, though, I just want to say one simple thing to Prof. Ashton and her family from the bottom of my heart…
